Here's the website if you need a map http://www.craftsdirectoutlet.com/

In looking at their site, I realized that I've driven by it a number of times and always meant to go in.  If you're into needle crafts, they're supposed to have an amazing selection.
Can anyone guess what I'll be doing tomorrow instead of homework?!  Grin

Well, yesterday, instead of homework, I did indeed make a trip out to the outlet.  I guess my expectations were a little high, because I was disappointed.  The majority of things were christmas crafts/gifts. 

They did have a good supply of scrapbooking supplies and jewelry findings, but the discount wasn't really spectacular.  I recommend waiting a bit, till the discounts increase, although you'll run the risk of things being picked over.

But, all their christmas wrap, bags, etc was 50% off.  I don't buy into those half off after christmas sales (really, where does one store that stuff all year), so it was nice to get that discount right before the holidays.

This is really more of a place to buy crafty gifts.  I've been driving by the gift shop co-op for ages now, waiting for it to open.  It's on 35th Ave E, right between Hiawatha and Minnehaha.

Even better, if you join the co-op, they'll sell your crafty stuff
